Peter Utaka joins FC Tokyo on loan

Striker Peter Utaka has joined FC Tokyo on a season-long loan from Sanfrecce Hiroshima, the two clubs announced on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old scored 19 goals in 33 appearances while on loan to Sanfrecce during last season’s MEIJI YASUDA J1 League campaign, earning him Golden Boot honours alongside Vissel Kobe’s Leandro.

“I’m happy to join FC Tokyo and look forward to meeting my team-mates and our wild and enthusiastic supporters,” Utaka commented. 

“But first I want to focus on training in order to improve my fitness. I hope you will support me as I give my best in every match I play.”
